Self care is a great way to fill up.

Sometimes the best way to give back is to not be negative.  For me the best way to stay positive is to make sure I am re-charging or doing some self care.  You will see me at the gym three mornings a week (usually).  This is my way of getting moving and being able to check out with some great music.  You will also notice that I am closed on Sundays.  I don’t always have plans on Sundays, but I do always plan to be off.

So I will ask you…what is your way to re-charge?

You’ve got a friend.

Did you sing that a little?  Do you remember that song?  Not the one from Toy Story, but the James Taylor song.  And now you are probably wondering what in the world I am talking about and how does it relate to stamping.  Here’s how this comes together.

Since today is the day to focus on giving back or paying it forward I want to remind you how the little touches from a friend or even a stranger can mean so much.  Last night I went to a meeting disguised as a dinner and it was long, hot (no air conditioning, just swamp cooler), and somewhat aggravating.  Just when I started to think that I could seriously just leave early (I had only been there 15 minutes) in walk two good friends.

One friend I was there to congratulate on a job well done and the other was there I am assuming to keep me from running out the door.  So we sat, shared smirks, sweated a bit, and I have to say I got kicked a few times being reminded to behave.  Thank you for keeping me sane last night as this now salty event is behind us.

This is a reminder to all of us, especially me, of what friends mean to us.  Be a friend.  Share a sweaty evening together and make a memory.  Thank you for being a true friend and even showing up with a cold iced tea.  You are amazing and made such a difference at least to me.

Make a difference to someone today.  You never know what will be that moment for someone.  This is why I do what I do.  Make your ripple.

Freezing punches.

So you have done it!  It…the enchanting word “it”.  You have managed to jam that cardstock into that punch and it won’t come out.  The springs are stuck and nothing is working.  You have dropped it gently on to the table, floor, or whatever other hard surface you have.  And those springs won’t budge!  I don’t want to call Joni to order a new one.  I want new product from the new catalog, not to waste money on something that is not working because I wasn’t careful.

So, for your last attempt before you call me, throw your punch (and whatever else is attached) into the freezer.  Yes, the freezer.  Give it a few minutes and see if that helps.  Often when metal gets cold it will contract.  This will give the springs enough space to release and you will get a do over.  You will get your happily ever after and get to order new toys instead of replacing your broken ones.

If you have to give this a try please comment and let me know if this works for you.

Promotions, farmers’ market, and class!

There is one promotion running through Monday night at 9 pm and is only available through me.  For every Stamparatus you purchase you get one FREE shammy piece to clean your stamps.  Please use host code Y9H7NWTT to help Jodi.  If you prefer to order in person please contact me.

Even though I am not at the Farmers’ Market this morning please go and support our town.  There is fresh produce, honey, and more to be had.  If this market isn’t supported it will go to the side like everything else.

I will have office hours today from 10:30-12:30 since class is cancelled this morning.  This afternoon from 3-6 will be class and tonight’s office hours will be in effect.  Here is the new flyer that I hope explains this well.

Ideas for giving back.

Today’s Friday again and it’s time to focus on giving back or paying it forward.  I don’t know about you but sometimes I seem to run out of ideas or just feel like it is a routine since I do the same thing.  So I want to give you some ideas and see if it helps.

  1. Donate your time (or money) to a local charity.
  2. Leave a random uplifting note on someone’s windshield.  Here’s a site for ideas on these notes…Link for Positive Notes.
  3. Donate blood.

If anyone has any others please comment and let’s keep this ripple going.

Tiled stamping.

This is probably the only time you will hear me say this.  Punch first and then stamp.  Yes, punch first.  Then lay your punches end to end and stamp as if it was one piece.  This will create a tiled look.

Stay tuned on Thursday to see the finished card.

Resting by catching up.

Today’s the day.  Have you heard?  All of the birthday parties, graduations, concerts, and more are done.  This is the first day I have to get caught up.  So be prepared to see the samples for card class, samples for the punch box class, and whatever else is on the list.

Now you know what I am up to.  What are you doing?  Now that it’s summer are you re-arranging your house?  Are you hiding under a blanket and wishing the whole world would just disappear?  How do you cope with conquering the overwhelming pile?

Happy Crafting!

Here’s what’s happening.

This week is the last week of school so it’s a little crazy in this house as we get everything finished, turned in, and checked off the list.  I do have a private party this week but nothing to invite you to.  On top of that is my daughter’s 16th birthday at the end of the week.  So this week is a little out of the normal, even for me.

Next week is Card Class!  Save the date for Tuesday, Thursday, or Saturday.  Invitations will be coming shortly!

I do have an order being submitted tonight at 9 pm.  If you would like to order please use host code VZB6PYY3 to help Linda out.  You can also contact me if you prefer to order in person.

The contest for today is any order over $25 in product will receive your choice of rhinestones or pearls for FREE!

There are office hours and open times to drop in, call, email, message, etc. today.
